No need to reinstall. Just aptitude update & aptitude upgrade,
whenever you feel a need to do it. Jaunty already has had about 200
megs worth of changes to it since the beta was released, but that of
course will depend on how many packages you install

I usually update every other day, but that can vary depending on how
many packages come through and how many of those I choose to install,
etc. And I subscribe to jaunty-changes so I get an idea of what's
being updated.

And then maybe a month or so after the release of jaunty you can do
another aptitude update && aptitude upgrade and get all the important
upgrades, then ride jaunty for a while getting bug fixes and security

thanks for letting me change the magnetic patterns on your hard disk.
